In January I read:
•A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway (re-read)
•Shirley by Charlotte Brontë
•Delancey: A Man, a Woman, a Restaurant, a Marriage by Molly Wizenberg
•In Praise of Slowness: How A Worldwide Movement Is Challenging the Cult of Speed by Carl Honoré
•The Professor by Charlotte Brontë
•Moon Tiger by Penelope Lively
•Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard
January was a very good reading month for me. I kept with my goal of not mindlessly watching a show or movie in the evening while sitting on my computer "working" & zoning out. Instead after dinner I spent almost every week-night of Jan reading a hundred pages or so.
I found that even though my reading goal for this year is to read better not necessarily more I was making my way though books quite quickly (even Shirley which was a dense 800 pages. It also found I was much more excited about reading in general, I felt like I had a lot more time in the evening, and ended up going to bed at a much more decent time. All good.
I want to track my film watching as well in these posts, but because I spent so much time reading I didn't watch many new (to me) movies this month. As apposed to in December where I was making a point of going though my Netflix queue & watching things that had been sitting there forever. We also went out the movies only once. The movies I watched in January were:
•The Leggo Movie
•The One I love
•Escape From New York
